Mapping Sustainability Initiatives on Gotland and Campus Gotland Outreach

How do local societal actors envision sustainable Gotland and the university campus as a part of it? How does Campus Gotland participate and get involved in sustainability issues in local society?

To get the answers, 30 in-depth interviews with non-for profit organizations, businesses, regional authorities, individual projects, as well as representatives of seven Bachelor and Master study programs based at the Campus Gotland have been conducted in August-November 2020. The research aimed mapping current community based initiatives related to sustainable development of Gotland. In addition, we analyzed existing forms of collaboration between Campus Gotland study programs and local organizations outside the campus, as well as possibilities to enhance the campus outreach. A database of some existing sustainability related initiatives has been formed for open use by the campus academic staff and other interested stakeholders. The research is supported by DBW Sällskapet.
